Higher educational cost-sharing, dual-track tuition fees, and higher educational access: the East African experience

Johnstone, Bruce; Marcucci, Pamela; Ngolovoi, Mary

Abstract:
This paper focuses on a particular type of dual tracking tuition in East Africa. Case studies conducted in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania describe how these policies are practiced and the outcomes of their implementation. The paper also explores the factors which influence the relationship between a dual tracking tuition policy and the degree to which higher education is correlated with socioeconomic class.The success of dual tracking policies in expanding capacity and quality and increasing participation and equity are discussed in conclusion to the paper.
